Bottle from Craftissimo at home. Armory XPA. Clearish copper pour with dense thin white head. Aroma is bitter and slightly pilsner-y with some grassy hops and some green apple. Taste is crisp and grassy with some solid deep malty sweetness. Again somewhat pilsner-y. Lasting crisp pine bitterness. Good!

bigcat03 (298) - Columbus, Nebraska, USA - FEB 4, 2017
Bottle poured into a tulip glass. Pours clear amber with a frothy off white head. Aroma is grapefruit, lemon, pine, and sweet bread. Initial taste is a nice balance of citrus and pine with a huge malt backbone. Aftertaste is big on malt with a little pine. Nice medium body with pleasant carbonation. Excellent beer that is easily drinkable and sessionable. This might be my new go to when I just simply need a good beer.
